About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Speaking of Birds...

   ...they seem to be on my mind a lot lately!  We saw so many lovely little birdies today- bluebirds, cardinals, robins...
   And we saw a lot of these little cuties, too!
   The park we visited was almost like stepping into "The Lord of the Rings"!  There were forests...

   Flowers...
   "Scary" creatures...:)

   Doesn't this look like something Bilbo Baggins would have lived in?  It's actually a fanciful little cafe and gift shop.

   There was even a little "troll door" at the entrance!  

   So lovely to see signs of spring.

   Mandy and Jeff raced through the labyrinth...

   Then, Katie joined in!

   Jeff ended up last, but just barely!

   I love that I was able to capture this sweet moment.:)

   This little gnome was in the middle of the labyrinth.

   It was such a gray day, but we were able to have the place all to ourselves!

   Some elves live here- with their sleepy dog!

   Do you ever feel like this??

   Hopefully, you feel like this more often.:)

Hi Lori
Looks like a wonderful family day out. I enjoyed your pictures so much. Did you climb a tree or something to take the labyrinth pictures from above?!!!!
The gift shop looks full of unusual birdy things.

Neat place! I would totally freak out if my daughter was that close to those little birds though... she is SO the bull in the china shop!
